In My Mailbox is a weekly event hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga’s Reviews. Here we can share what new books we’ve picked up this past week.
From Walden Pond Press
The Hero’s Guide to Storming the Castle by Christopher Healy
When Walden Pond Press sent me an email asking if I wanted an ARC for review on my blog, I about freaked out. I loved The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom (my review) so much, and I cannot wait to read its sequel. I’m trying to hold off until it is closer to the release date, but I’m not sure if I will be able to. Thanks Walden Pond Press!
From the bookstore:
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer.
You guys, it’s signed! That’s right, I went to a special author event featuring the one and only Marissa Meyer! It was great, which is good because it was a three hour drive to get there. But so worth it. 🙂
Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle
So I went to B&N looking for some cute cards, and left with this. Seriously, no will power.
From the library:
Touch by Jus Accardo
A teen at the library told me I HAD to read this one. So I borrowed it from the library.
Definitely a great book week for me!
- It has been such a stressful week at work. It’s school break week in CNY, so lots of kids coming in and out. Plus extra programs for said kids. And I’ve been planning this special book group. So much work.
- I’m going to see Beautiful Creatures today (Saturday)!
- It’s official – I’m going to see Matilda the Musical in NYC in June! I am ridiculously excited. Now I want to re-read the book again. Here’s a video of the West End cast performing at the 2012 Royal Variety Performance. If that isn’t the most adorable thing ever, I don’t know what is.
